We have concluded week 9, the final full week of the 2022 Legislative Session.
HERE you will find the legislative bill tracker supplied to us by our team at GrayRobinson. All of the bills we were tracking are listed on the report in numerical order. A few of the bills to highlight:
- SB 1048 Student Assessments by Sen. Diaz has passed off of the Senate floor and was taken up by the House. It passed off of the House floor with no amendments 83-34. This bill is expected to be signed by the Governor.
- SB 706 School Concurrency by Sen. Perry passed off the Senate floor and passed off of the House floor as well. The bill is now headed to the Governor’s desk.
- HB 1467 K-12 Education by Rep. Garrison was amended in the Senate to change school board term limits to 12 years with the clock beginning in November 2022. The bill passed off of the Senate floor on a party line vote. The bill was then picked up in messages by the House and passed off of the House floor also down party line. The bill now heads to the Governor.
While this is the last Legislative Session Update for this session, we will send out a budget overview as soon as it becomes available. We have also scheduled a Legislative Session Wrap-up which will be our Friday Live on April 29.
